Alex & Ani bracelets have been all the rage the past two years. However, at around $30 per bracelet, stacking your arm can add up quickly.
DIY Alex and Ani inspired bracelets
time per bracelet: less than 5 minutes
cost per bracelet: less than $4
I found these supplies at Jo-Ann Fabrics, but I’m sure you could also go to Hobby Lobby. (Hobby Lobby tip: half the store is 50% off one week, then the other half is 50% the next week. On repeat. Forever. If you happen to do this craft on a non-50% off week, there’s always a 40% off coupon online for a single item.)
3-pack bracelets: $5
charm sets: $1.97 each
The only tool you’ll need for this is a pliers.
The charms I bought already had jump rings attached to them. If yours do not, you can buy a bulk pack for under a few dollars.
Just open the jump ring with your pliers and wrap around the bracelet. Use the pliers to push the jump ring back together.
Seriously, that easy.
